Reinvestigating Art House Exhibition in an Era of Convergence

updated: 
Monday, April 3, 2017 - 2:07pm
The Projector: A Journal on Film, Media, and Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 1, 2017

     The Projector is developing a special (potentially double) issue reinvestigating art house exhibition. We are interested in research that contributes to the growing body of work on art house exhibition, particularly in relation to the changing modes of art house distribution and exhibition in the era of media convergence.

      This special issue looks at the changing modes of exhibition at art house theatres by examining their audiences, marketing strategies, programming, fundraising, technologies and industrial practices.

Approaches to this topic may include:

  • Case studies of individual art house theatres

  • Historical art house theatres and their marketing strategies and audiences

Organic Systems: Environments, Bodies and Culture in Science Fiction

Though often understood in ecological terms, the word ‘environment’ can also be viewed more widely as the surroundings and conditions of a specific system—whether they be mechanical, biological, social or chemical. Culture arises from and then informs these systems, becoming itself a further component of environments. Science fictional texts have explored the interactions between culture, environments and bodies on a wide spectrum of scale: from the level of a planetary biosphere or climate system (e.g. terraforming) to a single body or organ (e.g. genetic engineering). This conference will gather Science Fiction researchers, critics, authors and readers together to discuss intersections between cultural and organic systems in all forms of SF media.

Renaissance Border Crossings: Documented and Undocumented
Portland, Oregon, October 19-22, 2017
 
In an era of rising nationalism manifested in contentious plans to ban immigration and erect walls, it is fitting that the Pacific Northwest Renaissance Society, which spans a region encompassing two countries and is devoted to a historical period of always-contested boundaries, should devote a conference to the theme of border crossings.

Sacred Journeys: Pilgrimage and Religious Tourism 4th Global Conference

The latest research indicates that more than 400 million people embark annually on traditional pilgrimages in Saudi Arabia, India, Japan, and elsewhere, with the numbers steadily increasing. Pilgrimage is one of the most ancient practices of humankind and is associated with a great variety of religious and spiritual traditions, beliefs and sacred geographies. These include the small-scale ‘walkabout’ of Outback Australian Aborigines in search of their own and their country’s spiritual renewal, the Sufi journey to the Mausoleum of Sidi Shaykh in the Algerian West Sahara, or to Lourdes in France, which welcomes over five million Catholic pilgrims each year in search of healing or deliverance.
